Loyal readers of the “print product” are familiar with the cartoon called Souvenir of Dallas that runs every so often in our Pulse section. One of my favorite installments was the one about Mayor Tom Leppert’s freakishly large hands. It was titled, appropriately enough, “The Mighty, Mighty Hands of Mayor Tom Leppert.”
Well, you — and even Tom Leppert — will have a chance to buy an original of that cartoon at an upcoming auction. The artist behind Souvenir is Paul Milligan. He and others are donating original work to the “POW! Live Art Show & Auction,” which benefits The Hero Foundry, whose mission is to donate comics and graphic novels to libraries, schools, and hospitals in an effort to increase literacy and promote creativity. The show and auction are this Saturday, at 8 p.m., at Titan Comics.
Mr. Mayor, it’s for a good cause. We’re expecting a high starting bid from you.
